Arsenale di Venezia (Weekend Reflections # 384)

Venice, Italy

This is the entrance to the Venetian Arsenal, a former shipyard and armory complex. As you can see it was a very foggy night and the water was agitated, but I managed to capture a few distorted reflections.

This place looks very impressive and it's full of history. Click HERE if you would like to read more about it.

Happy Reflecting!

The least expected in Venice - such a mysterious cast over the scene! Love it though, because I know Venice with day light:) Thanks for hosting, James!

Great photo, even with difficult lighting.
Kind of surreal.
